Chinking and clinking with subtle sparkles, seductive hummed "ohhs" and "ahhs" give an instant feelgood vibe. ‘Coming 4 U’ is a liquid roller with elements reminiscent of late '80s/early '90s R&B, with its muted piano chords and female vocal. The choppy, scuttling breaks bring some bounce as the sub softly plays its integral, understated part. Quality, vocal liquid at the standard we’ve come to expect from Break.
A soulful slab of drum & bass which sits somewhere in the midst of a melodic liquid piece and a deep tech roller. The weighty bass is omnipresent yet subtle leaving the crisp breaks, clicks and reverb vocal to take centre stage.There’s a huge country and blues vibe coming from the guitar and piano note. This is a stunning EP from a trio that are showing off their exceptional production skills, the flip is simply beautiful.
This sampler for V.I.M. Records' 'V.I.M.BREAKS250' compilation, celebrating a hugely impressive 250 breakbeat releases on the Greek label, sets out on solid ground with the lively and inoffensive mid-naughties-style acid tech funk of Grove's 'Spawner', a heady journey into progressive Hardfloor-style 303 territory. However, for me it's the shadowy, doom-laden stealth breakbeat of Miss Mants' 'Anonim', with its minimal breakstep drum work and deep dubby groove, that stands out.
Daisy-cutting beats, zipline-ing synths, belching distortion and at least two monster moments more than your average — one of the current shining hopes for UK trance drops science here.
